You either want to let your loved ones know “I’m fine, and this is where to find me...” or you want to let everyone know “Send help – here is where I am!”
For these basic needs, a big expensive satellite system is overkill.
The Somewear satellite communication device offers two-way satellite communication on the Iridium network and includes 24/7 SOS monitoring. They offer three plans ranging from $15/mo to $50/mo depending on how much data you need. There is no annual contract and you can pause months you don’t need to use the device, and a very basic $100/year plan.
Compared with the Garmin InReach, the most obvious difference is that Somewear is less than half the size and weight of InReach while maintaining the same transmission power.
Average battery life is claimed to be 10 days.
